(KSL News) The way the head of the Mine Safety and Health Administration handles the Crandall Canyon mine accident could determine if he keeps his job.

The Deseret Morning News reports Richard Stickler's term ends with the 2007 Congressional season. The Senate will then review his handling of rescue efforts here, including his decision to let the media enter the Crandall Canyon mine.

The Senate rejected Stickler's nomination last August, saying he was not focused enough on worker safety.

President Bush named him the head of MSHA while Congress was on recess.
